[Report estimates non-Whites will be the majority by 2042]
By Roy Beck
Well, more bad news from the Census Bureau.
Looking at today’s trends in immigration and in immigrant fertility, the Bureau now says that its previous projection of 420 million people in the U.S. in 2050 is too low.
Instead, it now looks like we are headed to 439 million in 2050 — if Congress doesn’t finally start correcting the collossal immigration mistakes set in motion in 1965, accelerated in 1990 and snowballing because of the effects of Chain Migration.
At least four-fifths of the additional 135 million people crammed on top of the 304 million already in our communities will be the result of new immigrants and births to immigrants, according to Census data.
ELIMINATE CHAIN MIGRATION FOR A BETTER FUTURE
The good news is that we don’t have to ruin the future quality of life of our children and grandchildren.
If Congress adopts the plan of action advocated by NumbersUSA, U.S. population in 2050 won’t have to be anywhere near 400 million.
The key is to eliminate the Chain Migration categories that create endless chains of relatives of immigrants coming to America, without regard to their skills, education or their ability to serve the national interest. (Please continue to use our free faxing system to press your Members of Congress to co-sponsor bills to end Chain Migration and to carry out the other solutions to our immigration problems.)
You can learn more about Chain Migration on various sections of our website (Read about Rep. Gingrey’s bill to reduce chain migration). In a nutshell, this absurd program that was invented in the late 1950s and expanded to the whole world in 1965 takes immigration policy away from Americans and allows immigrants to choose most of the future immigrants.
The Anchor Immigrant (who is allowed into the country on the basis of skills, education or special humanitarian need) can then bring an unlimited number of adult children, siblings and parents — none of whom have to meet any of the above criteria. Then each of them can bring their own spouse, children, siblings and parents. And each of them can do the same!
Pretty soon, you have a chain of expectation involving in-laws, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, second-cousins-once-removed, etc.
Most of the people in the world are now part of a “six degrees of separation chain,” according to our current policies.
We simply have to limit family immigration to spouses and minor children — no chain!
EVERY ASPECT OF AMERICAN LIFE THREATENED
If we don’t quickly and substantially reduce annual immigration, the additional millions will threaten nearly every aspect of life for not only the human residents but also the plant and animal inhabitants of this country…
